I do. It saves me a little coin. Often I ponder my decision as I'm cutting up my 4th or 5th doe.

Yes, but I'm lucky. My family has a monster 220v grinder that we use to grind hogs. If I had to use those $300 P.O.S. grinders that basspro sells, I would have to let someone else do it. A friend of mine bought one(3/4 hpI think)and it took him two hours to grind2 deer(hams/shoulders)! Might as well do it by hand, I told him to throw his deer in the freezer and we will grindthem all togetherthe season is over. We can grind 600 lbs/hr easily. Takes longer toset up/clean than it does grinding. I eat the loins plain, they dont need much help.

You batcha I do.. I only had 1 deer cut up by a butcher and never again. As it was a lousy job IMO and diidn't like the cuts he made out of it. Sure it takes time but you get it exactly the way you want it..

However if I am a way on a hunt that wouldn't allow me the timeI would need or my cutting toolsI would spend the extra to cut it up. It is better to have it taken care of than to have it waste..
